A little question about Nvidia driver update

Hi there!

Today I noticed something I didn’t see since installed Manjaro for the first time some weeks ago.

At Manjaro Settings Manager, I noticed that the following options are installed, regarding display (for my Nvidia GTX1060):

  • video-hybrid-intel-nvidia-prime
  • video-modesetting

Well, since I first installed the OS I was able to run some games, including, for example, No Man’s Sky without issues.

But, do I need to use that option “Auto Install Proprietary Driver”? Does the above means I don´t have a properly driver installed?

Thanks in advance.

P.S.: edited the post adding the output of inxi -G:

You are currently using the proprietary driver.

Thank you very much.
